  1. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    I thought it was fantastic in there , to have a pint and a couple of sandwiches and talk about the meeting with all the photos etc on the walls . Brilliant. Dreamland for a Heathen I can tell you.
  2. RIP Ivan Mauger OBE

    R.I.P Ivan of all the top riders in the 70s for some reason he had a special aura about him, I still remember the disappointment in the 78 World Final when he came off. I was convinced I was going to see him become World Champ again. A special rider. I remember the story above
  3. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    I feel guilty if that helps
  4. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    Btw what is it with the mascot, he scared the hell out of me kept thinking I'd have nightmares about him when I went to bed. Lol. Not sure what youngsters must make of him. Very creepy
  5. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    Thoroughly enjoyed my first trip to Berwick and my first meeting of the season, what a cracking heat 1 to get the season started. Worth the admission money seeing bomber blasting round there. Will definitely get back there but it's a bit of a drive!!!! To say the least. Said to my brother in the black and gold it would be a dream to have this set up. Not sure if we should have helped our self to the sandwiches but they were very nice.Also saw Cribby was a bit of a hero in his time there, must admit couldn't remember him riding up there. Shocking memory these days. Overnight stay in Spittals then onto Newcastle which was a decent night as well
  6. First trip to Newcastle and was a bit shocked was expecting a bit of a dump the way some go on but i thought it seemed a decent set up. Track was a bit patchy to start but first meeting and dodgy weather so wasn't too bad. A few decent races, I'd be happy enough with it being our track
  7. Hope your right I'm not sure if the Cradley fans will turn out in big numbers because of so few meetings this year or maybe not bother because we have so few meetings!!!!! We will be there
  8. Berwick v Glasgow 14/4

    First time to Berwick so pesky rain better keep away, onto Newcastle tomorrow which looks a little risky. Fingers crossed I get to see my first two meetings of the season

    Managed to get one to take on holiday Wednesday,trying to resist the temptation in opening it up
  10. How good was the racing at the Shay.?

    I only visited The Shay once and Exeter once but can't remember them being that similar . It was about 40 years ago though. I remember the banking at The Shay being really steep. I'm sure the Cradley coach broke down on the way back. Must of been about 76 I would have thought. Never got to Crayford
  11. Rye House 2018

    Off topic a bit but I've just come across some racing on you tube where old cars are pulling old caravans around a track where the object of the race seemed to be to smash anything that gets in the way to bits. Strange thing was the stadium seemed to be packed
  12. With us only having a few meetings I will travel round a bit this year, I would go back to watching the Wolves every week like I did before we came back but £18 is not value for money. Strangely though for say £15 I would probably turn up every week. It's only £3 but seems a more realistic price to me
  13. Kent 2018

    Rain offs one thing but I've come down with man flu and away next week so it's looking like my first meeting is Berwick on the 14th

    Meant to get one to take on holiday next Wednesday but forgot, doh, il pop into Tesco after but they normally sell out of the special. Supposed to be at Somerset tomorrow and Belle Vue and Wolves Monday so fingers crossed
  15. Just cancelled my subscription for this year because I didn't enjoy the coverage , I think I paid £25 last year. This year it's £120 but they offered it me for £75. I could also have taken it out for 4 months from mid May paying monthly with no contract at 60% discount but they didn't say what that would be. Anyone who took the offer last year I'm sure it was automatic renewal so if you don't do anything you could end up paying £120
  16. Never buy a programme these days, if it's called off can it be done by 16.30 on Thursday so I can go to the pub instead. I'm the driver Friday if it's on so no pub if it is on
  17. Did this last year and enjoyed it and got a full car load this year, hope the weather plays ball. Was hoping to have done a few meetings by then but it's looking like they will be my first two meetings of the season. Fingers crossed
  18. Redcar 2018

    Would he fit at Newcastle?
  19. Bt Sport Coverage

    That's good news I've got to phone bt next week and knowing this could make a difference to how much I'm willing to pay
  20. Berwickbandits2018

    Fully booked on the 14th, thanks anyway
  21. Berwickbandits2018

    Thanks il have a look, just booked a b&b in Spittals for £60 inc brek for 2 which I can cancel 48 hours before if need be
  22. Berwickbandits2018

    Thinking of coming up to Berwick on the 14th then down to Newcastle on the 15th to finish 2 of the last 3 tracks I've yet to visit. Any recommendations for an overnight stay prefably somewhere close to the speedway on the Saturday
  23. Belle Vue 2018

    Cracking race hope you recognise how lucky you are!!!!
  24. No TV deal?

    Have to agree I spent just over 10 years watching Wolves before we came back and the racing most weeks was awesome. I remember getting home and babbling on about it to anyone who would listen to me. I haven't been to watch the Wolves as much in the last 8 years but when I have it hasn't been as good. Agree I'm not a regular so could have just been unlucky with the meetings I chose to go to
